Reno 8, Salt Lake City 7

I'm still adjusting to life sans wisdom teeth.

And last night, I think the absence there of impacted my images. 

Down seven early, the Aces rallied to beat Salt Lake, 8-7 in ten innings. It was a hell of a game. In addition to knocking in the game-winning RBI, Collin Cowgill hit for the cycle. To top it off, fans enjoyed 70 degree weather and dollar ribs.

I should have shot better pictures: the opportunities were there. Still, when the season started I made a personal pact to blog after every game. Which, unfortunately for you dear reader, means a few mediocre dailies and one pretty picture of the left field light stanchion1.

Layne + Peavine. I like shooting lefties from the first base well.

Cowgill rounds the bases after hitting his sixth inning dinger.

Cowgill completes the cycle with a triple in the eighth.
